Director & Agent
Bo opened Boland and Reeve in 2011 with a view to offer representation to Actors who deserved and craved a personal and team based representation and still looks after many clients who joined from day 1. Having worked as a Director and Performing Arts Teacher around the UK and Europe, Bo felt as though he had a grasp on when people really wanted and needed to help manage the twists and turns this industry can throw their way. Being an Agent was the best way to extend the love and care he already offered Actors and Creatives alike.
From the beginning to now, Bo has placed Actors in leading roles in the West End, Television and Film whilst maintaining the ethos that the way the Agents at B&R worked was Actor lead. What does the Actor want, and how do we get there? This has taken young Actors from being unknown to playing the roles of their dreams and given more seasoned Actors the breaks they've long deserved. Bo was once asked, "Whats the best part of the Job" and to this day he maintains that it is to land an Actor their dream job. It's an incredible feeling. Bo now manages a team of driven and personable Agents whilst looking after his own book and dreams of an Agency where people are getting the kick out of managing talent that he does.
